True Friend

Happy Snow Day Everyone! It snowed ALL day here! WOW! The main roads weren't too bad but the roads by my house were completely snow packed! No, we didn't get out of school or anything like that (I don't think that we would ever get out of school for snow). But it made for a different kind of day and it was nice to look out the window every now and then and see the flakes falling.

My card today is one that I did at a workshop back when the mini catalog was out, probably in October. I really like how simple this card is to do! The flower image is all on one stamp so I used my Really Rust marker to ink up the flower part and then the Wild Wasabi pad (because it doesn't come in a marker) to ink up the stem. Another thing I want to point out is that the Chocolate wide grosgrain does not go all the way around the card. What I did was take my 1/4" hole punch and punched a hole at one end (where the knot is on my card). Then I took one end of the ribbon through the hole and attach it to the back of the River Rock piece with tape or a glue dot and did the same with the other end of the ribbon to the edge of the card. Then I took a piece of ribbon and tied a knot right over the hole! I was thrilled to discover this little technique of tying my ribbon that I have used it a lot! I hope you find it just as fun!! Enjoy!
